WU MAN, pipa
and THE HUAYIN SHADOW PUPPET BAND [CHINA]
Chinese pipa virtuoso Wu Man joins with the brilliant Huayin Shadow Puppet Band for an evening of old-time traditional music and shadow puppetry. Amid shouts and the strumming of lutes and fiddles, the percussion of clappers and the ringing of gongs, the band sings and plays about rural life in remote China, painting an aural picture of places and sounds rarely heard in the West.
+Equally at home in a variety of settings, Wu Man is a principal musician with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble and has also recorded music for the soundtrack of the DreamWorks Animation film, Kung Fu Panda 3.
Join us for a special free film screening of Discovering a Musical Heartland Wu Man’s Return to China on February 28th at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. More information can be found here.
